Apple increases iPhone orders

by on15 August 2011

Up by 13 per cent
Jobs' Mob has increased its total order volume for iPhones, consisting of iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4 CDMA and iPhone 5, for the second half of 2011 by 12-13 per cent.

According to Digitimes, Apple was happy to make 50 million shiny toys at the end of the second quarter of 2011.  Now it wants to make 6 million more. The iPhone 5 will account for 25.5-26 million units on its own, Apple thinks. Digitimes, talking to its various sources, said that iPhone 5 orders for the third quarter of 2011 have been lowered from seven million units to 5.5-6 million units, while fourth-quarter orders have been raised from 14 million units to more than 20 million units.  This might indicate that the iPhone 5 will be late.

Total orders for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4 CDMA for the third quarter exceed 20 million units, and fourth-quarter orders have been reduced to eight million units. Of course Apple is not commenting on any of this.
